Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

We need goals from midfield. We've scored 14 goals with 11 assists from midfield in all comps this season. Milner and Shaqiri are the only ones offering 5 goals or more.  The two Silva's for City have scored 16 goals with 11 assists between them. De Bruyne - when fit - scores at least 10 goals and provides 20 assists. 

 

Possible players that can come in and help us: 

 

Felipe Anderson - 9 goals, 3 assists

Marco Reus - 14 goals, 7 assists (from attacking midfield)

Kai Havertz - 11 goals, 5 assists

Nabil Fekir - 10 goals, 5 assists

Memphis Depay - 6 goals, 12 assists

Christian Eriksen - 7 goals, 10 assists

Bruno Fernandes - 16 goals, 7 assists

 

 

 

 

 

Agreed. This is why we wanted Fekir and why our top priority is probably a #10.

We'll probably sell Wilson to Bournemouth for £20m and buy that Leeds kid and never play him. 

 

I'd be up for buying Coady as back-up across the back four, bringing Wilson in and spunking the majority of our money on Sancho and a no10.

Across the back four. He plays in a three.  A lot different. Coady at full back?

Your right it won't last forever,  as soon as Klopp goes such results from wheeling and dealing ends.   You can get back to praising them for the common finishes of well outside the cl places then. 

 

 

Your house smells of Vesta beef curry.

Who are the other #10's we can look at ?

We rarely get leaks ahead of time of transfer targets from reliable journos anymore, so it's hard to say.

 

Some good ones around Europe that are around the age we usually go for are Havertz, Ziyech, Bruno Fernandes, maybe Milinkovic-Savic even. @Boss mentioned some of them. They'd all be quite expensive but they all have loads of end product. Those are more the midfielders/10 rather than the wingers/10 Boss also mentioned. 

 

Besides those and the obvious Fekir link which may or may not come back at some point, I think one that is quite possible is Lanzini. I remember the likes of Joyce and Reddy had mentioned him as a serious target before he hurt his knee. As long as there's no long term damage there and he reestablishes himself, I wouldn't be surprised if he was a serious option. 

 

And another one who I find really interesting is Anderson Talisca but he went to China recently, so I don't know what's up with him.

Personally, wouldn't mind us going back in for Julian Brandt. He's finally showing signs of turning into the world class talent that he's always promised to be. He has been exceptional of late under Bosz in that attacking central midfield role. Now would be the perfect time time to get in.

James Maddison or Mesut Ozil if you want more ‘PL proven’

I can just see it now - Mane, Firmino and Ozil hunting opposition defenders in packs. Ozil gets his foot in and shifts the defender with a tigerish tackle before setting up Mo for the archetypal gegenpress goal.

 

Jurgen will gurn, fist pump and shout "that's Premier League proven".

Ozil can press as well as anyone.

I don’t think there’s been a player I’ve liked or put forward whom TheHowieLama or Em City ever liked. Almost as if it’s nothing to do with the players.

Ozil is overhyped wank though.

It's more one for the Shitness of Modern Football thread to call Ozil -a player who's had a wonderful career- shite. He very clearly is not shite. It's typical hyperbole.

Been that way for two years for Arsenal -- who is keeping him out of the team -- Iwobi??

Even before that he disappeared more often than not in the biggest domestic games.

    • Simon Mignolet is attracting a deal of interest by Liverpool's Premier League rivals but it has emerged that the Reds are just as keen to retain the Belgian goalkeeper.

      The Mirror reports that Crystal Palace and Brighton are interested in signing the 31 year-old Belgian for a transfer fee in the range of £8 million.

      However a different report from ESPN says that valuation falls short of their own and in any case, the club is determined to keep the veteran who they view as a fantastic influence in the dressing room.

      James Milner said as much in April "It's incredible how he is around the training ground, he has the best attitude I've ever seen in my life."

      It is that sort of high praise which is echoed across the club with Jurgen Klopp, goalkeeping coach John Achterberg, the rest of the backroom team and the playing squad wanting Mignolet to extend his six-year stay with the club.

      It is also believed that sporting director Michael Edwards has not actually put a fee on Mignolet as he does not foresee a sale taking place.  

      Mignolet who has another two years to run on his current deal ,was signed from Sunderland in 2013 and has made over 150 appearances in that period.    But he only added two cup appearances to that tally in 2018/9 after the summer signing of Alisson and the Brazilian did not give him a look in with his constant level of exceptional performances.

      Liverpool have been linked Alex McCarthy for Southampton in recent weeks to fill the back-up role, but more and more, clubs are very keen on having a couple of senior players on their books to help the younger players coming through as well as the new signings.

      In some ways being a number two is one of the toughest in football as you never know if, let alone when your number will be called.

      But you cannot buy respect and it seems the Belgian has that in spades. 

      It remains to be seen what will transpire between now and the end of the transfer window, but it seems a near on certainty that Mig has a place at Liverpool for the foreseeable future if he wants it.

    • "Watched by one and a half billion people worldwide..."   Yeah, right. Who the fuck watches the Commonwealth Games? Why does it even exist anymore?
    • Centre backs are harder to profile statistically and this is based on limited minutes but it's obvious what Edwards and the laptop nerds see in him:     That would look pretty solid if you were talking about a 26-year old. From a 17-year old, it's ... *drools*
    • Hopefully Spurs are not really our business this upcoming season but still, I am definitely NOT a fan of seeing Spurs fix the biggest problem in their squad with the best available player to do it with. Ndombele is seriously good.   Plus it means Lyon will definitely hang on to Aouar until next season at the very least. He is going to cost us an arm and a leg when we eventually go to pry him away from them.
    • Looks like it. Hopefully helps those useless cunts take points off City.
